All tasks go into immediate panic mode, because the deadline is only 24 hours in the future. That is not playing nicely with other projects. Please increase the deadline for tasks to at least 3 days. 1 week would be better.

Yes, the TreeThreader jobs have very standard deadline, as each job last typically 30-50 minutes on one CPU core. We can increase it by another half day, as the scientist side has a more urgent deadline for the results than other applications.
